Bighorn Fishing Report 12/19/2021

Date: 12/19/2021

Current Conditions

The Bighorn has been fishing well and is now clear after the lake turned over. Keep an eye out for BWOs and midges on the surface but they are slowing down a lot. The weather in the Ft. Smith area is usually more mild than the western side of the state. Streamer fishing with olive gongas and dungeons should be good just mind the redds as the browns are a rocking so please don't go a knockin. Nymphing with orange or pink sowbug/scuds, black zebra midges, and perdigons has been good. Trout spey is an excellent choice on the horn.
